Beware! Bleaching Cream Causes Kidney Failure – UK Doctor Warns

bleaching cream causes kidney failure

August 14, 2016 – Nigerian Doctor Reveals How Bleaching Cream, Chemicals Causes Kidney Failure & Diease, Dr Chukwudi Ukpaka Says Mercury Dangerous To Human Kidney

  • UK Doctor Says Prolonged Used Of Chloroquine Causes Blindness
  • Dr Ukpaka Says New Drug That Shrinks Fibroid Costs About N200,000

UK-based consultant physician on Family Health, Dr. Chukwudi Ukpaka has raised awareness on the causes of kidney disease and blindness.

Speaking on the rising cases of kidney failures, Ukpaka warned against use of bleaching creams saying:

“It contains mercury and other heavy metals that enter the body through the skin, seep into the bloodstream and travels to the kidney and does not go out through urine.

After a period of time, they accumulate and break down the kidney. A lot of people who require dialysis were caused by their use of bleaching creams.” He also noted that prolonged use of gentamycin causes deafness and kidney failure for people whose kidneys are not very strong, saying the symptoms may take up to one or two year to show.

Ukpaka averred that fibroid cases no longer require surgery due to the risk of bleeding and infections. Rather he said there is a new drug that shrinks it till it becomes small and falls off, but he was quick to add that it costs about N200, 000 and doctors know the drug.

He warned against the use of Chloroquine, which according to him has been banned and criminalised in some countries, because it causes blindness which may take up to five years after use to manifest.

    And I am still wondering why I haven’t heard or seen the whites, bleach to black, I even can’t seem to remember my high school mates back then due to the result of this. I pray the victims get to read this article and avoid it as fast as possible. I love my black skin so so much, and I can’t afford to destroy it all in the name of looking good

    I learnt long ago that mercury found in bleaching creams are harmful to the kidneys but some people I advised to desist did not believe me. Maybe this article will convince them. Thank you@NaijaGist.
    It also is a relief that there is an alternative to surgery in treating fibroid. Traditional medicine practitioners have always claimed they could treat fibroid cases with their potions ? This write-up is confirmation of that claim regarding orthodox medical treatment of the condition. Exciting to know indeed!!!

    Whenever I see women that bleach, I look at people with no brains, d bleaching I wonder is for what. Does it add value to their lives, now all it adds is a long time ailment.
